    what the fuck.
    sometimes i think that graf writers might not be ignorant fucks, but i am often proven wrong.
    maybe if this country weren't fucking evil and didn't exploit EVERY other country in the world for everything we can get out of them, especially third world countries, then people wouldnt be happy that this shit goes down.

    not the people in the buildings and especially not the people in the planes. but this is a message that our miliary control over nations and our business control over nations economies will no longer be tolerated.
    many innocent people died tuesday. but in pakistan and afganistan many innocent people die DAYLY as a result of suicide bombs and fighting between people of different religions and political groups.
    all the news footage we hhave EVER seen from that end uf the world is people demonstrating against america, burning flags and shooting guns. and why do you think that is? maybe it because the government who controls the media that we WANTS US TO HATE AND FEAR these people so that when the times comes, they will allready be the enemy. that is what governments do during war, they make the other side look less than human.
    maybe this was the work of bin ladan and others in afganistan. thats what we thought about the oklahoma city bombing and bigoted rednecks went around and attacked muslims and anyone who looked like they might be from the middle east but then it turned out to be some cracker-assed country bumkin from the farms of the american heartland.
    the government and te news 'just knew" that this was the work of bin ladan after about tem minutes and have been trying to proove it ever since. the only people who have said that it might not be him or that even if it is, an attack wouldn't do much good are people in the CIA, and the people who are all about rushing into war on afganistan are senators and george w. who do you think knows more information about whats going on?
    think about it.
    anyone who says shit, thinks shit or does shit to anyone in this country who is from the middle east because of this should be fucking hung in the town square of your dinky little town, and if i see it, they'll get a swift kick to the throat.
    aside from that, R.I.P. to all victimes and much love to all families. this is so horrible and serious, its hard to think about. i just painted fr8s all day to take a break from the news and all this shit. graf makes for good therapy and stress releiver.
    i hope no one misunderstand my words to support the events that happened.
    it took me 2 days to track down everyone i know up there and make sue they're all ok, and thankfully they are. all shaken, all scared, but alive. the whole time i feared the worst.
    sorry about the rambling, but i feal that it needed to be said


    this was from an email i was sent today...

    The following, from a Canadian newspaper, is worth sharing. Its subject is "America: The Good Neighbor"

    Widespread but only partial news coverage was given recently to a remarkable editorial broadcast from Toronto by Gordon Sinclair, a Canadian television commentator.What follows is the full text of his trenchant remarks as printed in the Congressional Record:

    "This Canadian thinks it is time to speak up for the Americans as the most generous and possibly the least appreciated people on all the earth. Germany, Japan and, to a lesser extent, Britain and Italy were lifted out of the debris of war by the Americans who poured in billions of dollars and forgave other billions in debts. None of these countries is today paying even the interest on its remaining debts to the United States.
    When France was in danger of collapsing in 1956, it was the Americans who propped it up, and their reward was to be insulted and swindled on the streets of Paris. I was there. I saw it. When earthquakes hit distant cities, it is the United States that
    > > hurries in to help. This spring, 59 American communities were flattened by tornadoes. Nobody helped. The Marshall Plan and the Truman Policy pumped billions of dollars into discouraged countries. Now newspapers in those countries are writing about the decadent, warmongering Americans. I'd like to see just one of those countries that is gloating over the erosion of the United States dollar build its own airplane. Does any other country in the world have a plane to equal the Boeing Jumbo
    Jet, the Lockheed Tri-Star, or the Douglas DC10? If so, why don't they fly
    them? Why do all the International lines except Russia fly American Planes? Why does no other land on earth even consider putting a man or woman on the moon? You talk about Japanese technocracy, and you get radios. You talk about German technocracy, and you get automobiles. You talk about American technocracy, and you find men on the moon-not once, but several times-and safely home again. You talk about scandals, and the Americans put theirs right in the store window for everybody to look at. Even their draft-dodgers are not pursued and hounded. They are here on our streets, and most
    of them, unless they are breaking Canadian laws, are getting American dollars from ma and pa at home to spend here. When the railways of France, Germany and India were breaking down through age, it was the Americans who rebuilt them. When the Pennsylvania Railroad and the New York Central went broke, nobody
    loaned them an old caboose. Both are still broke. I can name you 5000 times when the Americans raced to the help of other people in trouble. Can you name me even one time when someone else raced to the Americans in trouble? I don't think there was outside
    help even during the San Francisco earthquake.Our neighbors have faced it alone, and I'm one Canadian who is damned tired of hearing them get kicked around. They will come out of this thing with their flag high. And when they do, they are entitled to thumb their nose at the lands that are gloating over their present troubles. I hope
    Canada is not one of those."

    Stand proud, America!

    This is one of the best editorials that I have ever read or heard regarding the United States. It is nice that one man realizes it. I only wish that the rest of the world would realize it. We are always blamed for everything, and never even get a thank you for the things we do.

    so are you re-posting his comments cause you agree, or cause your trying to make him look bad? everyone is allowed their opinion, and when's, although perhaps worded pretty badly at times, is not completely without merrit. i could have done without the large bolded 'we deserved this' but otherwise, i dont think he's so far off... if defamation was your aim, its in incredible poor taste.

    its not about defamation. its about making an observation and just giving another side to a separate opinion. when has the right to his opinion. as do i. thats why were here. ive come across a few people who belive this country deserved something like this. others who dont feel it does. other who are just neutral on it. so who really knows. maybe america has done injustices to other countries. maybe theyve helped other countries out before. so maybe this country doesnt deserve anything then. maybe it just remains neutral. no praise and no terror upon it.

    i noticed before that a few people were saying that certain peoples opinions were pretty much of no merit in this whole thing. because i guess if youre not there then you have no word on the aftermath of the whole situation. as if their opinions dont matter. well thats bullshit. everyones opinions here matter. thats how im seeing it. i want insite from all corners here. becaus this wasnt just an attack on specific ciites or individuals. this was a personal attack on everyone in america and even the world. this wasnt soley about affecting trading in the world. this was a statement to us all.

    and so you know. im not just another ''suburban white kid whos opinion doesnt have merit''. i was born in manhattan and grew up in the bronx for sometime before moving to the midwest. this has weighed very heavily in my mind ever since i heard about it. in many ways i feel a direct connection with nyc. not only because its my place of birth but because its the home of my fiends and relatives.

    and this isnt about sparking a conversation on the good and bad of this all and whether or not america deserved this.

    i dont want this to come down to people taking any kind of sides here. and i dont wanna see any kind of slurs against the "suspected" ethnicity of the people behind this. in this country people are innocent until proven guilty. so wait for more facts to come to light.

    so all im trying to say is. keep it friendly.
